The Boyfriend Jeans

Boy, oh Boy. Continuing on the trends for this year, these jeans are actually inspired by the special men in our lives, hence the name “the boyfriend jean”. Unlike the past few years when the jeans were getting skinnier and skinnier, the new way to wear jeans are a little bit baggy but still completely chic. When you first think of “baggy” jeans, you probably won’t associate the style with being classy or elegant. By pairing these pants with the perfect pieces, you will create a look unique and unexpected. One of my favorite ways to work this style is by adding a relaxed v neck such as this Cream V Neck Blouseall white sneakers such as these white Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Sneakers and an adorable strawfedora.

The three main criteria to be considered “boyfriend jeans” are to be at a length in between the calf and ankle, cuffed at the bottom, loose fitting (but not too loose), and they usually consist of rips and tears to give them a destroyed denim effect. These slouchy and slashed jeans are a great way to add an element of comfort to your outfit but you can still unleash your inner fashionista by adding a blazer and a beautiful pair of ankle strap heels. You could also channel your inner cool girl attitude by adding some wedge sneakers and a loose v neck to finish the look off. There are so many different styling options with these jeans, whether you are going shopping on Madison Avenue or running a few errands around town you will turn heads with your girly take on this previously known menswear item.
